How to Make Your Own Alphabet Wall Charts

How to make your own collaborative alphabet wall charts for your classroom that children will take ownership of and help improve student engagement.

A couple of years ago I spotted some child made alphabet charts from the classroom of one of my favourite educators

I have wanted to make my own ever since. 

For me, these alphabet wall charts made with images hand drawn by the students in the class were perfect but what I didn't realise was the ownership my class would take of this collaborative project.

I love using blocks in class and these wooden pattern blocks have been a firm favourite since I was a child. 

Pattern blocks are irresistible but I wanted to extend the type of play I was seeing while creating an opportunity for children to read independently and problem solve too. With that in mind, I created these different sets of printable 2D shape challenge cards to go with our pattern blocks.
